    JustJanS's Note:

    From one of my son's cookbooks. After reading the recipe, I realised it's just a big macaroon (my new favourite thing) with a yummy orange syrup poured over. What could be nicer?! I'm making this for visitors next week.

      Combine the almond meal and icing sugar in a bowl. In a seperate clean bowl, beat the eggwhites until soft peaks form. Add the sugar beating well, until thick and glossy then beat in the vanilla extract. Using a metal spoon fold in the eggwhite, in two batches, into the almond mixture.
    3. 3

      Meanwhile to make the orange syrup, stir in the orange juice, liqueur water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat unti the sugar diissolves. Simmer gently until the syrup reduces by a quarter. Drizzle half the syrup over the lukewarm cake and serve the cake with the remaining syrup and cream.
